Now that I’m adjusting to the idea that we will have yet another female around here, I’ve remembered something that happened long ago… back when the Mr. and I were just starting to date.
I had gone to the bathroom to pee when a certain thought entered my head. Not one to keep my thoughts to myself, I exited the toilet I shared with him the following:
"If we were to ever get married and have a little girl and then if something were to happen to me … When you explained to her about her period, remember to tell her to hold the tampon string up so it doesn’t get wet when she pees. I didn’t know if you knew about that."
To his credit, he did not run for the door. He just smiled at me and said, "That’s never going to happen." Leaving me to wonder, "Which part?". The Bastard.
So now that A) we are married and B) we will in fact have two girls… I’m left to wonder if he thinks me an invincible force of nature or if he in fact could not face the "Don’t pee on your string" lecture.
Maybe I better remind him.
